Jermaine Jones Lies About Father, Angers American Idol Producers

by at . Comments

Jermaine Jones is reportedly a very tall liar.

According to TMZ, the American Idol finalist told producers last week that his father abandoned him a decade ago, only to suddenly reappear in his life immediately after Jones was named one of the season's final 13.

Jermaine went on to label him a "lousy father" and said he didn't want contact with the man.

But now that man, Kevin Jones, says his son's story is simply ridiculous; the two have a perfectly normal relationship and even dined together last Wednesday and Thursday, while Jones was in the Idol crowd during last week's performance show.

Why would Jones concoct such a tale? For sympathy and attention, executives believes - and they are peeved.

But, with this lie now going public, the real question remains: Will viewers punish Jermaine for it? Stay tuned.

Jermaine, your attitude started showing in the past telecasts..what's up with you and your mom? too nauseating, and no, apparently you are not that sweet, but who of us is?
Always tell the truth and just be nice....your voice needs a lot of work, so don't get bigheaded alright?

I didnt like this cry baby from the beginning,,He played the Fantasia card and it worked for him. He should be disqualified.They brought him back and he made it to the top 13..He is rude crass,and obnoxious. Not fair to other contestants who deserve to be there. I hope the oger goes home.WHAT A JOKE THE JUDGES SHOULD KNOW BY NOW WHEN A CONTESTANT COMES IN WITH A SOB STORY. IF YOU CAN'T AUDITION ON TALENT ONLY AND HAVE TO PLAY THE SYMPATHY CARD,,THAN YOU ARENT THAT TALENTED IN THE FIRST PLACE.

A lot of young men have a minimal to Non relationship with their fathers, and Now we are being made aware of the fact that this Idol wannabee is willing to (publicly) downplay a relationship with his father for whatever reason. I can understand a person telling a lie for peace,or being in a dangerous situation,but to tell a large audience such an outrageous lie (about his own fathers) tells a lot about his character.
P.S.
Maybe between March and Thanksgiving,his family will have the welcome mat out for him ( with No New lies invited)!!

He wasn't going to GO ALL THE WAY anyway. However, don't really care for people who lie.

I had a bad feeling about this guys attitude from the get go and his real personal;ity showed last week during the vote outs where he acted very cocky and even said mean things to others. I was shocked he made it in the top 13 in the first place but what comes around goes around. ty Karma

I read some of this online this morning and just for the record, the rumors — they’re not true. She’s part of our family and we love her.
